University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) in the UK and USA University of Cambridge International Examinations accepts entries in the UK and USA only from students registered on courses at CIE registered Centres. UK and USA private candidates are not eligible to enter CIE examinations unless they are repatriating from outside the UK/USA and are part way through a course leading to a CIE examination. In that case a letter of support from the Principal of the school which they had attended is required. Other UK and USA private candidates should not embark on courses leading to a CIE examination. This regulation applies only to entry by private candidates in the UK and USA. Entry by private candidates through Centres in other countries is not affected. Further details are available from Customer Services at University of Cambridge International Examinations.
You can find syllabuses and information about CIE teacher training events on the CIE Website (www.cie.org.uk).
